of stuff that people can come after you with. kind of the backdrop here is that house speaker john boehner has had some hiccups or headaches lately. it started late last year when house republicans struggled over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him

in my opening remarks that john brennan came here to explain there is a legal framework ar. we administration -- the administration is developing a counter-terrorism playbook. we are aware that some of the congress want to see the legal memoranda that has been prepared by the obama justice department explaining the policy around targeting american citizens abroad. it is a careful policy. i personally think as a former member of congress that in a classified setting, those memos should be made available to congress. there should be a public discussion of not all the details but of the general subject. i am pleased to raise it -- it is the kind of thing the wilson center does. we want to have conversations around tough security issues. other questions? >> thank you. i and the ambassador of costa rica. ambassador of costa rica. our country is doing well on the security and economic front of your fighting with institutions that put a lot of -- fighting with other institutions. we are the conduit to the u.s. stock market drug market -- the u.s. drug market. your department, is worki

beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterday that obama singled out issues like ensuring that women get equal pay as a key part of the principles he was trying to establish. host: republicans in the house and the senate, what are they saying on this? guest
